Re: Seeking: Volcano Viewpoints

Hmmm maybe I don't understand the question. I can think of a bunch of excellent viewpoints of the Three Sisters that captures all three.

I do a ton of exploring out there so maybe connect with me via PM and I'll help you out.

Re: Covid-19

So, the Gorge, State Parks, and 46 million acres are closed. But what I witnessed today, in town, was terrible. Trying to "fix" a problem by closing so many trailheads really dumps people into dense areas in town, and popular BLM areas. Not sure it was a good call to close so much. The thing is no ...

Re: Covid-19

I have a feeling that starting tomorrow, we'll be ordered (not asked) to stay home altogether. Even the most restrictive shelter-in-place orders (so far) have allowed 'outdoor recreation'. So I think they may move to close more popular/crowded trailheads, but won't go as far as telling people they ...

Re: Covid-19

It's premature to speculate on what things might look like in a month, let alone next summer, but I will drop one idea into the hopper. There are many more miles of forest roads than of wilderness trails in the Mt. Hood, Gifford-Pinchot, or Willamette National Forests. They may not have nearly the ...

Re: Grizzly Mountain, OR

Re: Ski Trekking at Crater Lake Feb 17-18, 2020

Cool, I've never heard of those skis but then again I'm pretty green on Backcountry skiing. Hoping for good weather for the full circumnavigation next month. Curious how much traffic there was beyond the Watchman. Any tracks? Any other people camping?
